Volkswagen announces small SUV concept for Geneva

By ,

Next week at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, Volkswagen will unveil a new compact SUV concept called T-ROC.

Riding on oversized 19'' wheels, it's about the same size as a Golf, more precisely 4.18 metres long (with a wheelbase of 2.59 metres), 1.83 metre wide, and 1.5 metre tall -- making the T-ROC a possible future rival of the Nissan JUKE.

Under the hood is a 2.0L 4-cylinder TDI engine that produces 182 horsepower through a 7-speed DSG and 4MOTION all-wheel drive system, shooting the T-ROC from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. Fuel consumption is estimated at 4.9L/100km. Three drive modes are available including Street, Offroad, and Snow.
